Welcome to my blog!
I’m Helen your host. Mother of two, bookkeeper to many and wife to one.
I am a professional negotiator, organiser and multitaskering-er which pretty much encompasses my everyday routine. In the middle of all that, I am also studying a Creative Arts Degree at La Trobe University in Melbourne. My study focus is creative writing and film studies.
When I heard that La Trobe University was offering a unit called, Writer’s in Action through the Bendigo campus, I was thrilled. Not only would it entail five days away from Melbourne, but it also meant that I would have five days of leave from my husband and children.
I sound horribly, I know, but who gets that kind of holiday when you have an eight and six-year-old? Not to mention, five days off from cooking, cleaning and screaming my lungs out – which tends to happen often before and after school hours.
This will also be the first time in ten years on my own. It all sounds like the perfect holiday.
